‘israel too weak to attack Iran’

The commander of Iran’s Ground Forces says the damage israel sustained during its offensives against Lebanon and the Gaza Strip has rendered it incapable of “opening a new front” against Iran.

On Saturday, Brigadier General Ahmad-Reza Pourdastan said tel aviv was still convalescing from the ‘indescribable blows’ it received from the 33-Day War of 2008 on Lebanon and the December 2008-January 2009 Gaza War, Fars News Agency reported.

“Today, the aggressor zionist israeli army is a crippled one,” he asserted.

Fighters with the Lebanese resistance movement of Hezbollah defended Lebanon against the israeli invaders during the 33-Day War and tel aviv was compelled to withdraw its troops without having achieved any of its objectives.

The Gaza War also saw Hamas preventing tel aviv from materializing its stated aims of destroying the Palestinian resistance movement and halting rocket-firings at southern israel.

Pourdastan, meanwhile, said, “the Armed Forces of the Islamic Republic of Iran are ready to respond to any threats,” against the county.

On November 6, israeli president shimon peres threatened that an attack against the Islamic Republic was becoming ‘more and more likely.’

zionist israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu and Minister of Military Affairs ehud barak have also reportedly been lobbying the israeli cabinet to approve of a military strike on Iran.
